Fans set for supercar start-up show

Car lovers will have a unique opportunity this bank holiday Monday to catch a host of ultra powerful vehicles in action.

The Supercar Start-Up, now in its fifth year, will be revved up providing petrolheads a rare chance to enjoy the unique sounds produced by the most prestigious vehicles as they are put through their start-up paces at the Beaulieu Motor Museum, in the New Forest.

The line-up includes the 1928 Mercedes-Benz and Graham Hill Lotus 49 from the National Motor Museum collection.

A McLaren F1, Ferrari Enzo, Pagani Zonda and an Audi R8 are among the prestigious supercars joining the group.

A Demonstration Run will see them driven through the Beaulieu parkland. Later on, Graham Robson, a motoring commentator, will be discussing the vehicles with the drivers.

The visitors will pick up the best supercar by voting, which in turn will win the People's Choice Award.
